Vaudevisuals interview with Kate Ladenheim & Cecilia Lynn-Jacobs

MAGNUM OPUS: A Retrospective – the culminating performance of ‘Oh, Celine’.

In 2018, The People Movers’ choreographer and artistic director Kate Ladenheim and performer–designer Cecilia Lynn-Jacobs devised a collaborative project titled OH, CELINE and its heroine, Celine (née De La Croix). This fictional Brooklyn-based avant-garde dancer was conceived as a hilarious yet sincere caricature of a downtown artist. Through a sequence of events – sometimes harrowing, sometimes funny – the clueless New Age-y diva evolved into a provocative, Borat-like figure through whom her creators set to unmask the power structures in the contemporary art scene and our society at large. Over the last few months, Celine’s experiences unveiled through a long series of disarmingly pretentious social media posts, a mystifying art film, and surprising live appearances — all of which inspired unexpected reactions from the audiences. Now, Landenheim and Lynn-Jacobs present a look at their heroine’s journey in MAGNUM OPUS: A Retrospective, a multidisciplinary evening of solo performance combining theater, dance, and scenic installation, presented by Brooklyn Studios for Dance.

Thursday, April 11, 2019 – 8:00pm daily through April 14, 2019

Vaudevisuals interview with Adam Burnett & Lisa Nevada – “T.B. Sheets”

T.B. Sheets – About The Show

Set in a tuberculosis sanatorium on a remote mountainside (not unlike Magic Mountain), a community of terminally ill Ones transcend to an order of living saints and build a spaceship to escape their physical ailments. This dizzying and iconoclastic new work celebrates the power and beauty of the fragile body and the multiplicity and fluidity of identity.
